Kaylee, Christina, and I went to see James last night after I was done teaching. Kaylee had brought pictures of her family to show him, and James started commenting about her hair. Then he turned to me and said, "Your hair is dark, like Asians." "Umm... I dye my hair. It's not really this dark," I told him. And he looked absolutely horrified and shocked that I would want to have dark hair! I told him I will bring him pictures to show him what my hair really looks like, because he couldn't picture my natural color. I am not sure I can even picture/explain my natural color any more because it's been almost 2 years since my hair was its natural color. This means I need to figure out how to print pictures here, because I didn't actually bring any hard copies with me (of course not, I was trying to pack super light).
While we were waiting for the other girls to meet up with us for Jessica's birthday dinner, Christina and I decided to go check out the inside of McDonalds (because it is 3 stories, and what McDonalds needs to be 3 stories? Only in Taiwan). Kaylee said she would watch out for our bikes while we were inside. As Christina and I were coming back down the stairs to leave, I totally caught a guy trying to sneak a picture of us. We're starting to wonder just how many "covert operation" pictures people have captured of us.
Finally, we had dinner at a place called Style that seems to be open 24 hours. Jenny called it the Denny's of Fengyuan, but the food was about a million times better than anything I've ever had/smelled at Denny's. Also, there were English menus, which is always a plus because then you don't have to guess about what you're getting.
Don't worry, Dr. Harris. Even though they did have 1000 yr old eggs, I didn't get any.
Heather, the Birthday Girl (Jessica), and Kaylee (who was trying not to be in the picture, but my camera was acting up so I couldn't actually tell what was in the frame and what wasn't)
The fruit waffle I ate. SO GOOD!
Christina got some sort of duck dish because she wanted to be daring. She did not love it, but the flame was cool!

And what we fondly began to refer to as "The Beak" oranges.
